New research commissioned by Dove Men+Care found that 70% of people have an impactful father figure in their life, but only 10% regularly celebrate them on Father's Day. That's why Dove Men+Care is recognizing the stepfathers, foster fathers, godfathers, brothers, coaches, friends, teachers and more this Father's Day that have played the role of an impactful father figure through their unconditional care – the living proof that Care Makes a Difference. Care Makes A Dad.

To ignite this conversation, Dove Men+Care released a new film "Care Makes a Dad".The film showcases the real stories of kids from across the U.S. and the special bonds they share with their father figures, who rise to the occasion every day to make a difference in their lives.

"We're thrilled to bring attention to the unsung heroes of Father's Day," says Alejandro Fiecconi, Global Head of Brand for Dove Men+Care at Unilever. "There are children with father figures in their lives who mean the world to them, show up for them, support them. These men exemplify care. We wanted to give these men a round of applause – even if they didn't ask for one."

Joining this celebration is father figure and professional basketball playerNah'Shon Lee "Bones" Hyland. Bones has been a father figure to his cousin Izzy since a tragic incident brought them closer together when Izzy was a baby, creating an inseparable bond. Bones' compassion and commitment to doing what's right every day makes him a role model and hero to Izzy, and exemplifies the ways care makes a difference. Together, with five other father figures – from teachers, stepfathers, and grandfathers – they remind us that Care Makes a Dad.

"It's an honor to be featured in this campaign," says Bones Hyland. "My cousin Izzy is one of the most important people in my life. He's like a son to me. I'll be there for him every step of the way any way I can."

Ogilvy, who led creative development of the campaign, shares more on the evolution of the campaign. "This year, building on our commitment to celebrate and champion the transformative care that all dads can give, we're throwing the definition of fatherhood open wide," says Rob Butcher, Global Creative Director, Dove Men+Care for Ogilvy. "This campaign celebrates all the men who step up to care out of choice. Coaches, uncles, adoptive fathers and community dads who show that care makes all the difference to the children in their lives."

Dove Men+Care is bringing the ethos of the film to real life to spark a change on those we should recognize on Father's Day and beyond by:
